I find great satisfaction and pleasure in teaching both on the undergraduate and graduate levels. When I observe a student have an “aha” moment in the classroom, when my students learn to critically evaluate their own biases, or when I encounter students who teach me new interpretations of course material, I am encouraged to continue to strive to enrich my students’ lives through an education that cultivates a love for knowledge and thinking, a curiosity about the world, and attention to social and environmental justice. I strongly believe that teaching communication theory and practice can create active global citizens and critical thinkers equipped to make the world a better place.
